dated June 10, 1955: Lisbon's note to India

Portugal has formally notified India that "attacks" on Portuguese territories "will be met with force," a Foreign Ministry communiqué said in Lisbon on June 8. It said all "illegal entries will be severely put down as criminal violations of Portuguese sovereignty, the Indian Government being exclusively responsible for any consequences that may ensue." The communiqué said it was thought necessary to give public opinion "ample warning of the seriousness of the present situation and of the risks for peace in Asia through the sole fault of the Indian Government." The communiqué said: "The Portuguese Government has been following with anxiety the developments in India, with encouragement of the highest Indian authorities, of a whole series of events intended to provoke fresh anti-Portuguese agitation in that country, with the result of increasing tension along the frontiers of the Portuguese State of India."
